Types of Credit
Courses conferring academic credit are numbered 1000 through 7999
and are divided into eight ranges. Many courses in our catalog are upper-division
level extension (7000-7699) and graduate level extension (7700-7999).
Courses with an "x" prefix are equivalent to courses of the
same number offered by the Cal State East Bay regular academic program and also confer academic credit. Courses numbered x1000-x4999 may be
transferable for unit and subject credit toward a bachelor's degree
at Cal State East Bay (36 units maximum). Courses numbered x5000-x6999
may be transferred toward a graduate degree at CSUEB with the written
approval of the academic major department (13 units maximum). Courses
numbered x1000-x1999 are equivalent to freshman level; x2000-x2999,
to sophomore level; x3000-x3999, to junior level; x4000-x4999, to senior
level; x5000-x5999, to postbaccalaureate and professional level; and
x6000-x6999, to graduate level.
Courses numbered 7000-7699 are usually applicable toward educational
credits at Cal State East Bay, state clear credential, salary increments
and some state supplementary authorizations.
If you plan to receive elective units in a degree or credential program at Cal State
East Bay students cannot take courses for Credit/No Credit.
Certain courses in our catalog (tagged with an "s" suffix)
are designated as "special session" courses. These provide
resident credit and are not subject to the limits of transferability
Continuing Education Credit
Many courses in our catalog (8000-8999) carry CEUs, a nationally recognized
unit of measurement for any of a variety of nonacademic programs which
may apply toward re-licensure, promotion, or career advancement.
Noncredit courses (9000-9999) are designed for personal enrichment.
A maximum of 15 units taken through Open University may be applied
toward graduating with honors from the University. No other units taken
through Cal State East Bay Continuing Education will be counted for
